by | Nov 30, 2022

Did you know that chiropractic care for a herniated disc is available and that’s a non-surgical treatment option? Herniated discs are painful and impact your ability to maintain and enjoy many of the typical things you once did. We have treated bulging, ruptured, and herniated discs and welcome you to make an appointment so we can get you back to feeling as good as you can without choosing surgical options followed by recovery time.

What is a herniated disc?

Before we tell you why our non-invasive chiropractic treatment is a good option, we want to go over a little bit about this condition. The discs in your spine act as a shock absorber as they distribute pressure and provide flexibility. Let’s say you jump up and down. Without any cushioning or the support of your discs, your spine could not really function – and honestly, neither could you.

How do herniated discs happen?

Without getting too technical, when cracks in the outer layer of the disc occur, the material in the disc can push out. There are a variety of factors that can cause your herniated disc. Sometimes, too much stress is put on a disc due to poor posture, being overweight or a physical injury like a fall. 

For many people, this is when back pain occurs. Usually, you’ll notice a small amount of pain but as time goes on, you’ll start to feel more back pain which could interrupt your daily life.

Why should you consider chiropractic care for a herniated disc?

Chiropractic care for herniated discs has been proven to be both effective and advantageous.  An experienced chiropractor can help address your lower back pain or other symptoms. We will examine your medical history, perform a physical exam and other orthopedic and neurological tests. We also have the ability to order an X-ray or MRI to assist with a proper diagnosis. 

We will evaluate your whole spine, even if your back pain seems to stem from one single area, as well as your neck. Overall spine function is important – and you’ll learn that so much of your body and spine are connected that they often impact other areas of pain, movement, flexibility and so on. 

What happens if you have been diagnosed with a herniated disc?

Once we have determined that this is the correct diagnosis, we will create a treatment plan to help address your symptoms and create a treatment timeline. If we feel that additional medical care is needed, we will help get you to the right expert for what you need. The full examination and panel of tests will tell us if and how we can help! This may include spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustments and other chiropractic techniques to help ease the pain. In your treatment plan, we will also include exercises. We consider your pain level, level of activity, overall health and more.
